Quick Reference


born in Pennsylvania, was reared in North Carolina, graduated from Princeton (1910), studied at Cambridge, served in World War I, and returned to North Carolina to write. His two major novels, Drums (1925) and Marching On (1927), use his experience of war, but are set respectively in Revolutionary and Civil War times, in keeping with his theory that a writer needs “perspective of years.” His other novels are Roll River (1935), set in his native Harrisburg; and Long Hunt (1930) and Bitter Creek (1939), about the frontier West. Eighteen Poems (1944) is a posthumous collection.
